Eurocar Specalists :

hello there !

Eurocar Specalists :

on the gauges, if they flat line there is a couple of grounds i would like you to check first

Eurocar Specalists :

first the ground at the steering column , second both kick panel ground points left and right (you may have to remove the kick panels to gain access to them , third the ground on the firewall in the engine compartment

Eurocar Specalists :

all of these grounds please loosen the nut inspect for corrosion and then replace the acorn nut w/ a serrated nut and retorque and then retest !!!

Eurocar Specalists :

there can be a chance that the instrument cluster is bad due to a loose solder joint !!! but check the grounds first !!!

Eurocar Specalists :
